The Tax Sale Industry's Premier Source for
Tax Lien Certificates Since 2001.
Hi, my name is Steven Waters and I'm the founder of Tax Lien University. Regardless of how you first learned of tax lien certificates, I'm certain you have a few questions.
I've been in the tax lien business for over a decade. I can still remember my first tax sale auction and how excited I was to buy my first tax lien property. It's hard to believe that was nearly 15 years ago. A lot has changed between then and now but one thing has remained the same; my passion for this business.
Tax Lien University Mission.
I founded Tax Lien University with the mission of introducing people to the fascinating world of government-issued, and real estate secured tax lien certificates.
Through our newsletter and top-selling course Creating Wealth Without Risk™ we've introduced over 100,000 people to the exciting world of tax lien certificates.
From the beginning, I wanted Tax Lien University to be a different kind of company. I wanted a company that not only valued it's customers but also committed to helping them achieve their goals.
"I purchased 3 tax lien certificates at an Internet auction for Miami-Dade County, Florida. All three were buildable vacant lots in moderate income neighborhoods. The prices were: (1)$1,018.86 (2) $1,224.90 (3) $1,654.82. I got 18% interest on all of them. I placed 39 bids in total." A. Hamad, Florida
Every day we go to work helping our students learn how to capture the tremendous wealth-generating power of tax lien certificates. It was true when we opened in 2001, and it’s just as true today.
It's hard to know what is fact or fiction.
Over the last few years we've seen more than our share of high-pressure personalities explain how rich you can get with tax lien certificates.
They rarely take the time to point out the pitfalls because they are too busy exaggerating the benefits in order to sell a high-priced product or service.
Focusing entirely on the upside and neglecting the downside does more harm than good. Creating a distorted explanation of tax liens not only confuses people but more importantly it completely misleads them.
Unfortunately, I've been on the receiving end witnessing first hand the damage resulting when a misinformed investor buys a tax lien on a property they would've passed on had they known better. The excitement quickly fades once they realize they just became the new owner of a property ridden with problems.
You have to know what you're doing.
Tax lien certificates has several characterstics making them an attractive alternative to other popular investment choices. People choose to buy tax lien certificates because of they are government issued, offer double digit penalty interest rates mandated by law and secured by real estate.
On the flip-side, tax lien certificates can be an unattractive investment choice because of pitfalls which, if not avoided, could end up costing far more than initially invested to buy the tax lien certificate. Through its education products, Tax Lien University is here to help people learn how to navigate the fascinating world of tax lien certificates.
Since 2001 I've been on a mission to arm investors with accurate and authoritative information so they can bypass the pitfalls and increase their chances of having success with tax lien certificates.
